Beach Birds

From our trip to the beach on November 7, not the sunniest day but some very exciting birds!

I was very happy to spot a pair of Solitary Sandpipers,

As I was taking pictures of them, they spent most of their time over the water waiting for me to leave,

The male came very close to me for a few minutes,

While my family and I were enjoying the water and body surfing, I looked up and there was the Yellow-crowned Night Heron. I ran out of the water to get my camera before it flew away,

On the other side of the roof,

I was able to get a very close look at the heron,
